My first experience with the Quantum 10K II was less than good.
I received a spare PC and fired it up to insure it survived shipping.
The horrible vibration and noise resulted in yanking the plug and opening the case.
After investigation it was discovered the noise and vibration was caused by this drive.
Can Quantum say Quality Control? And what about HP? They installed this drive and shipped the machine. Didn't the people in the front office complain about the noise comming from the assembly line.
I honestly do not expect the bearings to last long enough for this machine to collect dust. It will need to be placed in a noise shop or the users will complain before the setup is complete.
I quickly admit I don't like Quantum Drives. I've lost data more times due to Quantum Failures than any other reason including accidental deletion.
Remember the big foot? I replaced many of those for unhappy users.
And if this drive reflects the best Quantum offers, well. . .

I wonder if the HP Compaq merger will have any affect on quality?
~ The manual said "Requires Windows '95 or better" ...so I installed Linux!
